Investing.com -- The domestic market made a positive opening on Friday, shrugging off weak global cues as banking and financial stocks lifted the market sentiments, while strong earnings reports from major companies like Axis Bank (NS: AXBK ) bolstered the broad market gains and resisted weakness from Wall Street’s overnight fall and lower Asian markets.
At the time of writing, benchmark indices Nifty50 gained 0.4% and Sensex surged 294.7 points or 0.5%. Among sectoral indices, Nifty PSU Bank outperformed, rallying 2.82%, while Nifty Bank jumped 1.58%.
Adding support to the market sentiment was the provisional data (on NSE) for Thursday, which showed that FIIs bought Rs 1,864.79 crore worth of equities, while DIIs sold a net share worth Rs 886.8 crore on Oct 20.
In the current firm market, the country’s most-valued company by market capitalization Reliance Industries (NS: RELI ) and the 5th-ranking heavyweight Hindustan Unilever (NS: HLL ) will release their earnings results for the September quarter today.
